When Martin and I used to do gigs there, we'd cover the stone with tarp, and then a layer of peat moss or wood chip to stop the fuel coating the stone. (Mainly so we didn't go slithering around the place - it gets like a skating rink otherwise). We used to keep a bag of stuff backstage for whenever we were performing there.

Just a thought wink

your thoughts are more than appreciated helen. i found that the removal of shoes & socks is an excellent way to eliminate any slippage. bark is pretty pricy tho, and theres usually a healthy crowd of drummers & spinners, once we get entry & pints, theres not much money left over for us to be getting bark.. but do you recon the tarp alone might be enought to keep the stone fuel free?? i'll have to get some fabrics & conduct some experiments in the carpark.

Tarp alone will help - but will probably be slippery, and possibly wrinkly. Fuel may even puddle up on it. We used to duct tape some down, and one large bag of peat moss goes a long way. We used to re-use the same stuff for several gigs, before it got too saturated with fuel and needed replacement. Sand would probably be ideal, as it won't light even if very heavily sprayed with fuel. Also it can be good to have a clearly defined performance area - it does restrict the amount of performers burning at a given time, but it also stops people wandering right across them, and provides a "stage" of sorts. Tends to help ensure that at all times you have around 2 or 3 people lit, and the rest dipping/resting, rather than all lighting up at once and then having a lull.

We tried salting the stone too, but that didn't work.

Best of luck!
